Album won't be finished before we head off for Uk gigs. Apologies, thats why we are releasing single.

We are thinking we will release a single before we go to the UK on July 18th. I'll send the single to all the funders before we release it properly though.' I can hear echoes' is the track we were thinking. If thats Ok with everyone. Do let me know if ye have any objections. Cheers. Malc.

I hope it will all be worth it!
Had an amazing gig last night in the Woodford Bar. We were playing with some new folks – Leo and Cormac – who really added a new dimension to the songs. Leo is an absolute genius on the guitar and Cormac on the piano brought a whole new level to the music. We spent the whole night jamming and got a great response from the crowd.
Photographer Aideen Cooney took a load of pics of the night (see the one below) and gave us a great plug for the FundIt campaign on her Facebook page – it was only brilliant.
We’ve gotten some other amazing endorsements for the campaign as well – especially from Cork Penny Dinners. Thanks so much for the support in spreading the word. We’re up to 12 donors and almost €500 so far…39 days to go!
In the meantime, have a look at our FundIt page and please tell all your friends to have a look as well. We need all the help we can get! Thanks, Malcolm
